  • Abstract

    DNA probes are small segments of DNA which help to detect the presence of a gene of a long DNA sequence, in a biological system. The potential advantages of these DNA probe assays in the diagnosis of infectious diseases include rapid detection and identification of infectious agents, the ability to screen selected specimens using batteries of probes, and the detection of non-viable or difficult-to-culture organisms. These DNA probes are prepared for commercial purposes and are believed to be the most sophisticated and sensitive means to identify genes or specific DNA sequences. DNA probes are helpful for diagnosis of infectious diseases, identification of food contaminants for isolation of genes, and in other microbiological tests. It is believed that these DNA probe assays for a variety of purposes will be cleaner, simpler, faster, and cheaper than the traditional microbiological tests and are also expected to be 100-fold more sensitive.
